    download-1.jpg ordered a Dcr cam for my Grom. Someone told me you don' save gas on Honda minis cause you spend all the money on parts. They were right but it still gets 100mpg.

    How did I miss this!? How did you get your hands on it, I didn't know it was released yet... It's a great looking bike IMO!

    Today marks 3 years and nearly 10,000 miles of owning the Sportster. Before and after.

    I built it myself. I've been riding it since 1982. Just coming up on 200,000 miles.
    It's 924cc with a stroked crank and a lot of work.
    A Commando and a Stihl 038 mag. What more could I need?

    To cover the build very well would take a book. Last time I entered it in a judged concurs I put it in modified class and took first place with a perfect score. They couldn't find any part that was not modified.

    I will be in Elma Wa. July 16th-19th for the International Norton Owners Rally. Come on down and check out a lot of nice Nortons.

    Wow, you have 200 grand on it? that's awesome. I can't remember the most miles I ever had on a bike. my nomad has 65 ,000 on it now. I did see a wing one time with half a million. Norton and Triumphs were always my favorite bikes growin up. Nortons are hard to find here now.

    Added a bowman texas sissy bar, biltwell mini apes, valve job and higher compression, and a muthafuggin cam. Man, the cam made a huge difference, and it's just a mild 509G S&S cam.
